|Happy Birthday Dixie-chan! Thank you for another year of awesomeness! Let's keep it up for another year of fun!|
Ths is the headlining picture for Dixie's birthday! This is a 3 way collaboration between (art), (flat coloring), and (everything else). I also want to give a special thanks to for the coloring on Dixie; see during a join.me last month, there was some fan dissent on the coloring at the time, so the coloring had to go in a different direction (Sorry Zero! It actually wasn't my fault but I took the blame for it!) Represented in this picture is Hikira, Nera, and Dixie. When 3 worlds comes together, a story is born out of the chaos! I hope that people really enjoy this picture and give all 3 artists that were involved in the credits the respect the deserve and a watch!
Nera belongs to who did the lineart
Dixie belongs to who did the flat coloring for each character
Hikira belongs to who did everything else on this piece except Dixie's coloring
Special thanks to for coloring Dixie
|Oh boy, this picture has a bit of a story behind it. Late last year I asked to do a proper collaboration with me since we have known each other for forever and never done it before. He refused at first but I kept at it and he finally caved. Then he gave me THIS. Oh lord I was not expecting this. I didn't listen to Vocaloid at the time so I had no idea what to do and the little thing of DIXIE DOESN'T WEAR DRESSES!!! |
Zero, WHEN we do a collab again, let's not put my leading lady in a dress again! Oh and he laughed the entire time! One more thing; this was supposed to be done in January for Hikira's birthday, but I put it off until now. I won't be doing that again, i promise.
The line art and Hikira belongs to
Dixie and the coloring is all me
YOUR TRUE CHARACTER TAG FEST!(Ive been tag sooo WHY NOT? ) Dimension-Chronicler tag me .3. and this is in his own words of the explanation of what to do To WHOEVER I MAY TAG.Blackrose159
This goes back to a conversation I had about my theory of "reoccurring characters" for an artist.The theory of it is that character, who ever it is, has a story that they chose for that writer to express. We didn't "come up" with them… we discovered them, or they found us. We hear them the most, feel them the most, experience what they experience (even if we never had that happen to ourselves). Its truly a powerful connection. And so, I'm gonna tag people to do a quick little 5 question survey about that one or more characters that reoccur in their stories.
1. Introduce your character(s)
Well lets see.. My main character is Karasu Nokuni ,being the most connection to myself,but my other main characters are: Onami,Raiko,and Kotori. So lets go with karasu since
Birthdate: September 18
Weight: 130 lbs
Elemental Specialty: Ice, Light
Position: 2nd Phase, leader of the Legacy
Weapons: Holy Sword
Strengths: has control over 4 elements (water, wind, light, ice), is the only one who can wield Evangeline, can withstand extremely cold temperatures, has mastery over both Onikawa and Shiryu techniques, is the only one who can control Tressa
Weaknesses: isn't a master of any of those elements, can be quite reckless in battle, has stunting emotional issues, cannot stand heat, cannot fully beat anyone who uses fire or darkness elements, emotional state is tied to Banjo's wellbeing
Dixie is the only naturally born half-breed in the world, is the leader of The Legacy, and the main character of the story. She controls light and ice elemental techniques and is the chosen hero of the Goddess Aurora. She rejects her destiny though, fully believing that she shouldn't have to be told or railroaded to do good but to just do it. She battles endlessly with her sworn enemy Hana Akitoki and will do everything in her power to stop her, even if it means surrendering herself to her psychotic Phase Powers.
She has many emotional issues stemming from being bullied as a child, her grandmother's death as a child, the loss of her foster parents, and her mind splitting Phase Powers, but she refuses to let it affect her. She believes that sitting around, crying about the bad parts of her life won't make them go away, bring back the dead, or help her save lives. She keeps it all to herself and presses forward, a lesson that her teacher Chihana told her to adhere to strictly.
Okay, I am so dead. I know that I have a lot of Dixie fans who are probably going to crucify me for changing the look of their hero so to speak, so let me explain. and I were talking when I started the Legacy Project and I told her I wanted to put her in an alternate, more punk-like outfit, so I found the clothes and she drew them in it. I want to thank her for that, it means a lot to me to have this done and I hope that you diehard Dixie fans can maybe warm up to the outfit or give your own suggestions for future outfits!
I also want to thank for helping me with this one. Even though I had nearly completed it, he spotted some mistakes I made and I fixed them. I wanted this to be the best it could be and I am happy with the result! And now, all 10 characters are done!
I'm just an aspiring writer who is trying to get his story turned into a manga. If anyone is interested in reading my story, go to www.wattpad.com/516483-the-leg… I am looking for someone talented to do commissions; if you are interested, please drop me a line! Please enjoy the art I post |
